    I'm not too happy about the size of the venue in Milwaukee. 2,400 would make it tough to get a signed copy. But... the theater has one guest entrance, and then the stage door around the corner. No other main doors. So, I will likely be camped outside the door that afternoon when they come in to sign the 400 copies.

    Definitely do it! So you're thinking it will be a signing? My money is on the presigned lottery.
    I think the large venues will be presigned.. BUT smaller ones... who knows?

    They aren't listed yet. Milwaukee really only has one major independent bookstore, so I called them and had a really good conversation with the manager. He mentioned the venue, but wouldn't say anything about the signing format.

    EDIT: I just heard back from the bookstore that there will not be a formal signing.

    I'm sorry for the probably obvious question, but I have never attended a book tour event before and I am beyond excited to even think I may have a chance to meet my favorite author of all time.

    When "presigned" is mentioned, does that mean I would apply for a ticket via lottery drawing? If I were to get a ticket that gives me the right to purchase a signed copy of Sleeping Beauties at the event, correct? If so, any idea of the price of the book?

    If the event is not a presigned event, would it still be a "ticket by lottery drawing"? If that is the case is there a guarantee that I would get a book signed if I were to get a ticket, or is the ticket only for the event and there's a chance I may get a book that I bring with me signed?

    You buy a ticket to an event.

    With that ticket comes a book at the end of the night.

    Maybe it is signed, maybe it is not.

    Typically King signs 400 books per event.

    The chances of getting a different book signed are slim and none.

    LOL "slim and none". That seems to be so true with these events.

    At the prior SK events, there were 400 copies of Doctor Sleep or Revival that were signed prior to the night he spoke. Then, once he was done and people would leave the venue, they would exchange their ticket for a book. Maybe it's signed, maybe not. Either way, you get a book, but only a certain number are signed copies.

    OK, so it's a crap shoot even if you get a ticket. I'm still going to try to go to at least one of the events. Thanks for the info.

    There are some tips and tricks though. Becca might be able to help you out She posted a tip last tour and it helped me snag a signed copy.

    As some others may attest to, a lot also depends on who the person is that is responsible for actually getting the signed copies into the flow. The Orono event proved that they don't always pick the best person for the job.....

    On a side note, the "Boston Area" could cover a large chunk of northern New England. Anyone up for a return to Bridgton?

    Yeah, I agree that Mass is implied. Just being a little sarcastic as Bridgton is a 30 min drive for me... as it is now I try to take the train anytime I go to Boston. As long as the subway gets me close to whatever venue I'm going to, it's a lot easier and cheaper!
